9780007145454: Jesus and the Goddess: The secret teachings of the original Christians

Decoding the extraordinary myths of Jesus and the Goddess.

This exciting new work of groundbreaking scholarship from the authors of The Jesus Mysteries widens the debate on the relationship between Christianity and Paganism.

No strangers to controversy, Tim Freke and Peter Gandy decode the extraordinary myths of Jesus and the Goddess, and reveal startling new evidence of the profound relationship between the two. This unlocks the secret knowledge of Gnosis, or Christian mysticism, and demonstrates the relevance of these teachings to us today.

Controversial statements such as ‘Christianity is Jewish Paganism’ are bound to cause a stir.

The Jesus Mysteries is not a prerequisite for Jesus and the Goddess. It is a fascinating read for all those interested in decoding religion, fans of ancient wisdom, Christians, Pagans, and those who are keen to take on the idea of the Goddess.

Review:

Book of the Year
Fiona Pith-Kethley on The Jesus Mysteries, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

From the Back Cover:

Why were the secret teachings of the original Christians brutally suppressed by the Roman church?

Because they relate the myth of the Christian Goddess Sophia.

Because they portray Jesus and Mary Magdalene as mythic figures based on the Pagan dying and resurrecting Godman and the fallen and redeemed Goddess.

Because they show that the gospel story is a spiritual allegory encoding philosophy that leads to Gnosis – mystical enlightenment.

Because they undermine all external authority by revealing the Christ within.

Because they have the power to turn the world inside-out and transform life into an exploration of consciousness.

Drawing on the cutting edge of modern scholarship, this groundbreaking book from the authors of the international bestseller 'The Jesus Mysteries' decodes the secret teachings of the original Christians for the first time in almost two millenia.
